Nov. 16 starting 8pm @ Tetem
In 2010 Rafaël Rozendaal organised the first Bring Your Own Beamer in Berlin. An event where artists and other creative people bring their own beamer, to make a one night exposition with a broad range of visual works.
The first BYOB in Twente was held in April 2012 and it was a great succes with more than twenty participants and nearly a hunderd visitors. That’s why we’re organising BYOB2 to once again gather talent from Twente and beyond, have a good time and show of our work.
BYOB 2 will be on november 16 from 8am in the Tetem kunstruimte. Everyone can participate for free and any type of work is allowed as long as you can project it with a beamer.
This time we have an extra room with an acutal programme for installations or acts that don’t work well in the BYOB format. Things that are appriciated best with their audio or need silence will be given a spot in the Screening Room.
Just as last time the entry fee for non participants is 3 euros, for this money you'll get three tokens which you can donate to the works you like in the jars next to them. At the end of the night all participant can exchange their collected tokens for a euro a piece, so you can financially support your favorite work.
Impressions of BYOB1
the Screening room
Because not all works shine in a room full of other projections and loud sounds, we've added the Screening room of Tetem to the event. In this smaller room we'll show things that are more performance based, need sound or just plain work better with a little silence. During BYOB we'll give different acts a timeslot to show their work which will result in an evening filled with new and exciting works next to the main hall which will stay the same all night.
So if you have a VJ act with a spoken word artist, a work with generative sound, a datavisualisation that needs some explination we would love to have you in the Screening room.
Because the logistics and technical aspects of an extra room are tricky, we’ll have to figure it out together what works best. That's why we would appriciate it, that you sign up for BYOB as soon as possible so we can plan the night out in advance. (Make sure you tick the "I would like to show my work in the Screening Room" option)
BYOB Twente will be held in the TETEM kunstruimte. TETEM is a place and podium for the creation, analysation and presentation for arts, So it's the perfect place for BYOB.
TETEM is located at the historical Tetem 1 in Roombeek, Stroinksbleekweg 16 in Enschede. This location is easy to reach with bycicle, buslines 2 or 61 from the station and has a place to park your car.
